‘Nazi hunter’ files charges against Bernhard Frank

American self-styled Nazi hunter Mark Gould has filed a lawsuit against ex-SS officer Bernhard Frank for his role in the murder of Jews during World War II. But some are criticizing Gould, who filed his suit Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, for exaggerating the role of a minor figure. Gould, 43, disguised himself as a neo-Nazi in order to gain access to Frank, an SS lieutenant colonel who had worked closely with Heinrich Himmler. In the summer of 1941, Frank signed documents prepared by Himmler ordering that Jews associated in any way with partisans be killed.
